If you prefer to not encrypt the files to avoid remembering passwords, you won't be secure, unless you make a physical backup of the media holding your money and then put that backup in a vault (at your house or in a bank).

Actually, you could do a weekly trip to the bank and put your wallet.dat on a memory stick in a safety box. Assuming that you have that many BTCs to protect.

NO!! Encryption is not some magic thingamajawb that protects you from all evil.

Let me clarify: A _backup_ is of absolutely NO USE. So your weekly trip doesn't accomplish anything if the very same file has been on your main operating system. This is a dangerous fallacy, hence my analogy with "keys" instead of "wallets".

Again: that would be like making a copy of your safe-key every week and putting that in the vault.

It has to be a new, untainted address, in conjunction with the wallet.dat that you deposit. Actually, this is way more convenient, since you don't have to access your bank vault at all. You just deposit/sent the coins into the right addresses.



I am currently experiencing the problem of having created a password that is "too secure".  I am attempting to run the ruby code from another post on here.  I would post there directly, but I am here in newbieland for a while.  

Would someone care to point me to a comprehensive guide on how to run the ruby code on the post below and recover my wallet?  I have not been able to find anything online that explains how to run a ruby script to interface with bitcoin, and I am a programming novice.

Thanks for the Info! Never thought about using liveboot usb and a wallet, always just kept the wallet.dat in cold storage until needed.

Thank you for this information, it's very interesting because I've heart that there are some people who try to steal your BTC.

NOTHING is 100% secure!, the very same topic of this posting is fundamentally flawed!

Good point. I suppose the weakest element in the encryption chain is the human
